Breast cancer is at a tipping point right now in our country. More women are being diagnosed; many die due to lack of awareness and disparities in cancer care. With your help we can change that...
For a future free of breast cancer...
1. Give us a brick ...
Our Goal is very simple - it is a life
Rs.100 a brick to build a future free of breast cancer.
The foundation is not for profit but designed to be self sustainable. 21,000 sq feet land in Anna Nagar, Chennai, is available free of cost for the foundation .The foundation needs support to build the Centre.
Each brick costs 100 rupees and individuals can contribute from 1 brick to 1* 100, 500, 1000, 5000, 10,000 bricks!!! We need a brick each from 10 lakh people to reach our target of 10 crores for the building fund. Every brick helps. Every brick helps an anguished woman to get compassionate care. Every brick helps the most disadvantaged woman to get the best treatment. Every brick helps to build a future free of breast cancer.
2. Individual donations
Much of the vital work we do is funded by bequests. These come from the donations of those whose lives have been touched by cancer in some way. People with big hearts or those who want to make a difference in another’s life. It is their legacy to us. It is their way of saying thank you for all you do, for caring, for giving hope. Perhaps it can be your legacy too….please help us help them.
All donations are exempt from income tax and we are registered with FCRA to receive donations in foreign currency.
